Snoop Dogg Rumors
Kawhi Leonard is extending an olive branch to Snoop Dogg in the form of some free swag. The LA Clippers star Leonard sent the famous rapper several pairs of New Balance shoes this week. Snoop is a big supporter of the Los Angeles Lakers and clowned Clipper fans Marcellus Wiley and “Clipper Darrell” over the gift from Leonard. Here is the video (but beware of the foul language):
More often than not, the players on the team are able to block out the noise, and sometimes, they’re even able to laugh at themselves and their teammates along with the fans. But there are obviously times when it stops being funny, and Jared Dudley brought up one high-profile example on the “Load Management” podcast with JJ Redick: “I’ve got to be honest with you. I’d be honest with you, I’d tell you if it bothered him. It didn’t bother him. You heard him, it’s for jokes. Kuzma, let me be honest with you: You don’t think we make fun of his outfits coming in sometimes, like we bashed on everybody … We see everything, ‘oh, man, Dudley doesn’t deserve a ring. Man, I put 20-some years in this game and I don’t deserve it? Man, you can’t listen to it, man. You know this. With success, you’re gonna have your loved ones who think you’re the best, your mom who thinks you’re better than what you really are, and you’re gonna have some haters, that’s just how it is.
Now, the petition is low-key kinda funny. Like, really? Those aren’t true Laker fans, like Snoop Dogg calling out Danny Green and then when we win feeling good. Like this man Danny Green has won three championships on three different teams, being a starting shooting guard. Are we kidding? Like come on, man, like I agree, he missed a shot. He struggled at certain times, but the man is a career 40 (percent shooter).”
“As promised, the Lakers win the ‘ship, I’ll go get that tat.” That’s Snoop Dogg making good on his promise to the Lakers — getting some brand new body ink to commemorate L.A.’s 17th NBA title. The rap legend hit up his pal, Mr. Cartoon, on Monday night — and got a pretty large piece on his right forearm.
The piece includes Kobe Bryant’s initials on his wrist — along with the Larry O’Brien championship trophy above that … with the Lakers team logo right below the gates of heaven. Pretty cool tattoo. “Anything for the Lakers, everything for the Lakers, all things for the Lakers,” Snoop said … “F*ck the Clippers.” “That’s championship sh*t — something the Clippers don’t know nothing about!”
